Live 9 issues with "back to arrangement" button

Is anyone else having issues with live 9's "back to arrangement" or "re-enable automation" button?

I find sometimes when I click it nothing happens, it stays lit up and the automation lane stays greyed out instead of reverting to a pink line.

The only way I can find to get it back to normal is to right click the parameter in question and delete that automation and start again.

Very frustrating! Anyone else having a similar issue?

    I wish they would completely throw out this. Its been useful maybe once or twice in all the years of using Ableton. When thinking about it, I can't tell you how many times I've had to re-render entire projects because this button will randomly be 'lit up' after opening the project fresh.

    Know quite a few producers and engineers that use Ableton on a daily basis - nobody I know uses this 'feature', and they all complain about it.

    Could you try checking to see if you have a controller sending MIDI data to Ableton? It could also be specific VSTs as some instruments with NI's Reaktor wreak havoc on a project with the back to arrangement button which requires a deep dive to fix it.

    Live 9.0.5 it works as it always has on previous versions for me. 

    It's one of those things that is either useful or a hindrance and now it has been moved to the master channel I overlook this too sometimes and wonder "Why the hell is that beat carrying on now when I just edited that track..." 

    I actually find it hell useful as I use both arrangement and clip view to create. The main thing I like is being able to kick a single track out of arrangement to test a new pattern by simply hitting a launchpad button. I have a BTA button on the mackie so it's simple to kick back to arrangement as that button glows when out of arrangement anywhere.

    I am also having serious issues with the 'Re-enable Automation' button. I have recorded some parameter automation into the arrange window but whenever I try to play it back the 'Re-enable Automation' button lights up and the automation turns from red to grey and is not played back. Whenever I click on the re-enable automation button during playback it turns off for less than a second and then comes back on instantly, so it is impossible for me to play back recorded automation. 
    Someone suggested on another forum that it could be a faulty midi controller sending a signal to Live which made it think the parameter was being tweaked during playback, but this issue still occurs without any midi controllers connected. I have just bought a midi controller and I can't use it to edit any parameters properly, this is so frustrating!

    Hey All

    I plugged in another keyboard and it was active in the Midi Prefs. When I disconnected it the automation seemed to correct itself

    The only thing i have found to fix this problem is to delete all of your midi mapping. But that is a total hassle and just bloody stupid.
